A small scaled down version of a traditional type of short club hand-to-hand weapon used in combat by the indigenous Maori people of Aotearoa, New Zealand 

The puhoro style kowhaiwhai engraved design adds a unique contemporary touch to one side of the weapon. The other side is left bare, which enables the natural beauty of the native timber to be appreciated.

The Patu was an important cultural symbol for the Maori and was used both in battles and in ceremonial displays of strength and skill.

Today, the Patu continues to be valued and honored and is often used in ceremonial events and gifted during special occasions such as graduations, birthdays, and awards ceremonies, embodying the timeless traditions of Maori.
